Can you tell me please,
If we import a directory of images from the server with your plugin will wordpress create all of its thumbnail sizes for every image imported?
this is my fear...
I do not want wordpress to generate any thumbnails at all for any images unless that image is designated as a featured image in a post, we do not need any thumbnail for some image in the middle of a gallery or post but wordpress has awful "feature" of generating all thumbnail sizes for all images uploaded to media gallery even though they will never ever be needed or used anywhere.

So I am concerned that if we upload a directory to the media library with your plugin that wordpress or the theme or some other plugin will force generate all thumbnail sizes and if I import a few hundred or even thousands of images in order to create some awesome galleries with your plugin that I might also end up with hundreds of thousands of useless thumbnails consuming massive HD space space and creating a nightmare to backup the website.

and as an additional question regarding media library management can your plugins help us mange and get rid of the aweful thumbnail bloat that wordpress+themes+plugins generates ?

Our plugin is based on WP Media manager default, so the thumbnail will be generated according to your themes and Media settings.
You can set thumbnail sizes to 0 at Settings > Media, it will help you reduce thumbnail generations.
BTW, it's so painful for loading if you want to set one size for images.


Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
